In this video Paul Byrom talks to Pat Kehoe about why he used the Kickstarter Project to ask his fans to help him finance a special concert on the PBS Channel in America.
Major Irish groups like Celtic Thunder and Celtic Woman used PBS concerts to reach a wider audience at the start of their careers.
Byrom, whoâ€™s a former member of Celtic Thunder, believes he needs to do the same to achieve the kind of success he wants as a solo artist.
This interview was recorded on October 18 when Byrom was only $2,000 short of his $50,000 Kickstarter project.
Pat Kehoe is a writer for Irish Music Daily.
His favourite Irish music bands are the Dubliners and Planxty
